About me

I was born in Tokyo, Japan and moved to Hawaii at the age of one because my parents wanted my sister and me to grow up bilingual and believed that Hawaii would provide a nurturing environment for us. Watching my parents turn their hope of a life in America into a reality has inspired me to be determined and resilient in following my own dreams of becoming a physician. I obtained my Bachelor of Science at the University of San Francisco and returned to Hawaii to earn my medical degree at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine. Without the love and support of my family, I would not be where I am today.

About my practice

Pursuing a career in medicine started off as a childhood fantasy. I was in awe of doctors, who appeared like superheroes that could cure sickness. As I grew older, I became fascinated with the human body and its intricate systems. This passion, combined with my love of people and my innate desire to help others, made it evident that becoming a physician was my life’s calling.

I chose internal medicine for my specialty because of the breadth of knowledge required in this field. Furthermore, I love primary care as it allows me the opportunity to form meaningful, long-term relationships with patients.

To keep up with current medical research, I use UpToDate and attend conferences where information is shared about new clinical insights and developments. In addition, my membership in the American College of Physicians and the Gold Humanism Honor Society gives me access to the most current medical information.

I applied for residency training here, because I believed in Kaiser Permanente’s innovative and integrated approach to delivering care to patients. I also appreciated how the organization valued and was committed to creating a healthy work environment and promoting self-care among the physicians, providers, and staff. As a result, it was evident to me that the people here are extremely happy to be a part of the Kaiser Permanente family.

My philosophy of care includes building a strong and trusting relationship with my patients. I strive to give them the best care possible by getting to know them well and making them feel comfortable. I hope to create a warm and safe environment for my patients so that they can trust I will always be there to support them, especially through the difficult times.

How I thrive

I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my husband and our lovable Boston Terrier, dancing hula, singing, finding good restaurants, eating delicious food, traveling, and learning about different cultures.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business and uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

A narrow network is defined as a tailored, tiered or high-performance network that has 80 percent or less overlap with a health plan’s broadest network offered to a member in any type of plan offered by that health plan. Kaiser Permanente does not have a narrow network with respect to its Marketplace plans. Members enrolled in Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) Marketplace plans have access to the same provider networks as members enrolled in all other KFHP plans.
